Where can I park?
Parking is very limited on our site and we want to prioritise
what is available to those with mobility issues, or those with
emergencies. There are a number of public car parks situated close
to our hospitals (Cabot Circus, Rupert Street, St James Barton) and
we run a free return shuttle bus from Cabot Circus to our
hospitals. The bus leaves from outside the ground floor car park
exit next to Shopmobility. This map provides more information.
What if I am coming by train?
A free bus service also operates to and from Bristol Temple
Meads train station from Monday to Friday. The bus stop is to the
right as you come out of the station.
What if I am coming by bus?
All of our hospitals are a short walk from Bristol Bus
